(I’m a senior deckhand for a local cruise line. As such, I’m not only responsible for the safety gear and line handling during cruises, but for maintenance duties on the various boats, as is the rest of the Operations Department. On this day, I’ve spent an entire shift below decks, squished into the steering void of one of the boats, degreasing, grinding rust off of, and painting the rudder bar. Needless to say, I’ve gone a little stir crazy.)

Me: *in my best David Attenborough voice* “And here, we see the vanishingly rare Ops Gremlin emerging from her protective burrow. Should she see her shadow, we will have six more weeks of eight-passenger cruises…”

(My coworker, who was working the project with me, absolutely lost it for a few seconds, then insisted I post this here.)
